There is a difference in being optimistic and knowing who you are in Christ Jesus! I have been optimistic nearly all of my life, but there was a time when I was also a worrier! Yes, I have always looked at the glass 1/2 full rather than 1/2 empty and never have liked pessimistic behavior around me. You can be optimistic and have faith, but still not believe that your every need is met and that no matter what goes on in the world around you, you can have a peace that truly passes all understanding and be happy! This is the difference in Optimism and having a personal relationship with God and knowing who you are in Christ Jesus and who Christ Jesus is in you!
Some may think you are not dealing with reality when truthfully that is exactly what your are dealing with and how you are living your life! You see when we make Jesus our Lord and Savior then we KNOW who our source is, who our provider is, that He never will leave us nor forsake us, that He meets our every need ~ even before we know what it is and that we have an eternal home with Him! Eternal Home! That is forever and ever and ever!
To know who you are in Christ Jesus and who He is in you, you have to read, study, feed upon and absorb His book ~ The Bible! It is all there in black and white and red! It’s simple and oh, so rewarding! Find a good church with a shepherd who not only teaches his flock, but also feeds them meat!
Once I was optimistic! Now I know who I am in Christ Jesus and who He is in me! I walk in that wonderful peace of God’s that passes all understanding. I have no fear or worry of what lies ahead according to the ‘world’ because I may be in this world, but I am not of this world! I know who my Source is and I know that my Daddy is always there to take care of and protect me! You see…I am my Daddy’s Girl and proud of it!
Have an abundantly blessed day!
Love and Blessings,
Just want to share some of the awesomeness of God I see all around me!
